I'm taking an intro photography class this spring, they use film. We get to develop it ourselves as well.
Pardon my ignorance but is that still the case with a non-full frame DSLR? The 350D has a crop factor of 1.6x, I think so would that impact the sharpness of a 50mm?Most 50mm lens will be sharp be design since they are a 1:1 ratio to 35 mm and they are the easiest to manufacture/design.
Right now I'm shooting both RAW and JPEG (Large format).So, if you're shootin RAW with your DSLR, and things are looking a little soft right from the start compared to a JPEG, chances are it's because you're not applying your capture sharpening.
I'm not sure if saying a lens has a 1:1 ration to the film size is really a good way of phrasing things. Honestly, I'm not really even sure how to interpret that.Most 50mm lens will be sharp be design since they are a 1:1 ratio to 35 mm and they are the easiest to manufacture/design.
This image that is the circle of light, which is vertically flipped from what's seen by our eye, is generally sharpest in the center of the circle, and as light falls off on the edges, it gets softer.ridinhome said:Pardon my ignorance but is that still the case with a non-full frame DSLR?

Well... this is a potentially complicated question, if one were to take into considering balancing color temperatures of various light sources... but to keep it simple.ridinhome said:Given the fact that you can pretty much achieve any effect in Photoshop these days, why would you use a filter with a digital camera? Or am I being simplistic?
:lol Possibly the MOST important reason to keep using a filter with your camera.Oh, and of course there's the protection a filter on the front of your lens provides. Nothing PS can do to prevent the front of your expensive lens from getting scratched or cracked.
